- Sleep gadgets adjust if you’re restless — or snoring
By Anne D’Innocenzio - Friday Jul 14, 2017
Some specialized businesses are making gadgets that promise to measure and improve the quality of slumber, while mass-market retailers like Best Buy are offering simpler ideas like the effect different lighting can have on falling asleep.“I’m willing to spend more on sleep technology because it will hopefully help me fall asleep quicker, stay asleep longer and be more rested when I wake up,” says Frank Ribitch, a self-described gadget junkie from Martinez who tracks his sleep with apps connected to a Sleep Number bed and the Zeeq pillow.Insufficient sleep is a public health concern, federal officials say, with more than one-third of American adults not getting enough on a regular basis.“Previously, it was about the sleeping pill, and people didn’t want to talk about sleep apnea,” Lasse Leppäkorpi, co-founder and now former CEO of Beddit, said before Apple bought the company.The scientists assess how well the devices match the center’s own overnight sleep studies, which use measures such as heart rate and brain wave activity to determine the length and the stages of sleep.[...] San Francisco startup Hello, the maker of a product aimed at tracking sleep via a clip attached to a bedsheet, recently announced it was shutting down amid reports the device didn’t correctly track sleep patterns.Longtime insomniac favorite HSN Inc. offers a $299 Nightingale Sleep System that masks indoor and outdoor noises.Best Buy has a Philips Lighting’s system that works with devices like Nest and Amazon Alexa to let people choose the colors and brightness of lights and program them to turn off at certain times or respond to the sun.[...] a company called Sensorwake is launching a product in the U.S. that releases smells like fresh linen it says can help you sleep better.[...] if you let it go for three minutes without shutting it off or hitting snooze, it’ll start making noise — good if you have a stuffy nose.
